Administrators & Faculty

The International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) mission is to serve as a resource and advocate for the large and diverse population of international students and scholars at Georgia Tech. We provide a variety of support for international students holding an F visa, as well as J Exchange Visitors who are either enrolled at Georgia Tech as a non-degree seeking exchange student, degree-seeking student, student intern, short-term scholar, research scholar or professor.

We strive to create an environment where international students and scholars are able to make a well-integrated transition to Georgia Tech through diverse cultural, educational and leadership opportunities. Our goal is to be the model in building and maintaining an international community in a campus environment with the aim to create lifelong global leaders.

In this section, you will find information to assist you to support the international students and scholars at Georgia Tech.
